Museum of the town history

Zeughaus Wittenberg

Visit the redesigned museum of the town history in the arsenal Wittenberg and examine the more than 700 years old town collection.

The exhibition provides an insight into the general city development regarding  history, present and future of the Arsenalplatz and its buildings. This includes the use of the Artillery Carriage House on the Arsenalplatz as a new exhibition building for the Municipal Collections of Lutherstadt Wittenberg. The collections, from which a selected part is presented here, consist of several parts.
History is brought to life on three floors. The first floor of the Armory houses the "crown jewels" of the city of Wittenberg. Among them is the historical town model, which depicts Wittenberg as it was in 1873.
On the 1st floor, Wittenberg's town history is presented from the beginning of settlement to the present day.
On the 2nd floor is the exhibition part "Riemer's World". This shows a part of the natural and ethnological collection of Julius Riemer (1880-1958).
